2009-02-15bootgraph: fix for use with dot symbolsMichael Neuling1-2/+2
powerpc has dot symbols, so the dmesg output looks like: <4>[ 0.327310] calling .migration_init+0x0/0x9c @ 1 <4>[ 0.327595] initcall .migration_init+0x0/0x9c returned 1 after 0 usecs The below fixes bootgraph.pl so it handles this correctly.

2009-01-10bootgraph: make the bootgraph script show async waiting timeArjan van de Ven1-4/+42
It is useful for diagnosing boot performance to see where async function calls are waiting on serialization... this patch adds this functionality to the bootgraph.pl script. The waiting time is shown as a half transparent, gray bar through the block that is waiting.

2009-01-07bootchart: improve output based on Dave Jones' feedbackArjan van de Ven1-5/+11
Dave Jones, in his blog, had some feedback about the bootchart script: Primarily his complaint was that shorter delays weren't visualized. The reason for that was that too small delays will have their labels mixed up in the graph in an unreadable mess. This patch has a fix for this; for one, it makes the output wider, so more will fit. The second part is that smaller delays are now shown with a much smaller font for the label; while this isn't per se readable at a 1:1 zoom, at least you can zoom in with most SVG viewing applications and see what it is you are looking at.

2008-11-13tracing/fastboot: put error message on stderrStephen Hemminger1-5/+7
Since this scripts output is usually redirected, put error messages on standard error and exit with error code if no data is found. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Acked-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-11-12tracing/fastboot: fix perlcritic warningStephen Hemminger1-2/+2
Impact: cleanup Fix the following warning from the perl syntax checking tool perlcritic. This tool is a lint like tool that checks for perl best practices. Loop iterator is not lexical at line 113, column 1. See page 108 of PBP. (Severity: 5) Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-10-22tracing/fastboot: fix row order in bootgraph.plAlan Jenkins1-3/+3
When bootgraph.pl parses a file, it gives one row for each initcall's pid. But they are displayed in random (perl hash) order. Let's sort the pids by the start time of their first initcall instead. This helps trace module initcalls, where each has a separate pid. bootgraph.pl will show module initcalls during the initramfs; it may also be adapted to show subsequent module initcalls.

2008-10-22tracing/fastboot: fix bootgraph.pl to run with "use strict"Alan Jenkins1-5/+10
As a perl novice, I would prefer to have the benefit of the interpreters' wisdom. It turns out there were already some warnings, so let's fix them. Signed-off-by: Alan Jenkins <alan-jenkins@tuffmail.co.uk> Acked-by: Frédéric Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-10-14tracing/fastboot: fix initcalls disposition in bootgraph.plFrederic Weisbecker1-0/+6
When bootgraph.pl parses a file, it gives one row for each initcall's pid. But only few of them will be displayed => the longest. This patch corrects it by giving only a rows for pids which have initcalls that will be displayed.

2008-10-14tracing/fastboot: fix bootgraph.pl initcall name regexpArnaud Patard1-4/+4
The regexp used to match the start and the end of an initcall are matching only on [a-zA-Z\_]. This rules out initcalls with a number in them. This patch is fixing that. Signed-off-by: Arnaud Patard <apatard@mandriva.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-10-14tracing/fastboot: fix issues and improve output of bootgraph.plArjan van de Ven1-13/+16
David Sanders reported some issues with bootgraph.pl's display of his sytems bootup; this commit fixes these by scaling the graph not from 0 - end time but from the first initcall to the end time; the minimum display size etc also now need to scale with this, as does the axis display.

2008-10-14tracing/fastboot: add a script to visualize the kernel boot process / timeArjan van de Ven1-0/+138
When optimizing the kernel boot time, it's very valuable to visualize what is going on at which time. In addition, with the fastboot asynchronous initcall level, it's very valuable to see which initcall gets run where and when. This patch adds a script to turn a dmesg into a SVG graph (that can be shown with tools such as InkScape, Gimp or Firefox) and a small change to the initcall code to print the PID of the thread calling the initcall (so that the script can work out the parallelism).
